Practicing yoga since 1970 as a young student of Swami Vishnu Devananda.
Over time I explored many different methods of practising yoga asana and meditation while pursuing a dance career. I received my first teaching certificate from Yoga Centre Toronto in 1987.
During that time I was introduced to Iyengar's method and continued study with many prominent Iyengar teachers in Canada and India.
I became a Diploma Graduate of Shiatsu School of Canada in 1989, which included anatomy, pathology, physiology and eastern medical sciences.
I applied Shiatsu therapy skills with Iyengar method yoga in order to help heal clients with many different disorders.
This was my introduction to Yoga as Therapy.
I have taught in Toronto, Vancouver, London and Germany in various private studios and health centres including my own Fuji Oriental Healing Arts centre.
For 17 years I had been instructing group and private classes at Granite Club with emphasis on proper alignment taking each individual's personal needs into consideration.
I also have a successful private practice at St. Clair and Yonge. offering workshops,small groups and individuals who prefer personal instruction or require specific attention for more challenging problems, such as joint replacements, severe arthritis, , sciatica, herniated discs, CTS, MS, migraine. I also have experience in Pre and postnatal yoga, yoga for the elderly as well as for athletes.
I emphasize the importance of developing a balanced personal practice including, asana, pranayama, relaxation and concentration.
I offer yoga on site in the workplace and chair yoga for elders.
I believe everyone can practice yoga, if there is a will there is a way.
